Space Camp Scholarships

In 2023, The Aviation Foundation initiated Space Camp Scholarships at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.


The award in the 9 to 11 year-old division is presented to 9-year-old Olivia Martin, Honesdale, PA


Kameron Locy will attend the five-day 15–17 year-old division Advanced Space Academy.


Both awardees will attend their respective Space Camp programs in August 2023 with classroom and graduation photos to follow. Congratulations to Ms. Martin and Ms. Locy!                                  


The Aviation Foundation presented two Clifford Ball Memorial Scholarships, on May 23, 2023.  The outstanding Aircraft Maintenance Technician awardees are Austin John Wagler and Daniel Sullivan. Both students are now eligible for a Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics matching grant.
